scene details

Prompt: It’s About the Details

The prompt this week comes from Agatha Christie, Dumb Witness, a continuation of studying the setting of a scene, and the details you choose to set up the characters and the scene in general.

We were directed to the coffee room, a room of fine proportions, a room of tightly shut windows and an odor of stale food. We had some excellent mutton, large slabs of water cabbage, and some dispirited potatoes. Some rather tasteless stewed fruit and custard followed. After Gorgonzola and biscuits the waiter brought us some doubtful fluid called coffee.

Write a paragraph using the details that defines the scene or a character.
